OpenSUSE Install :: Error Loading Operating System (Live CD Was Totally Fine)?

May 17, 2011

This is a IBM T23 (10 years old)pentium3 1.1ghz640mb ram28gb hdd (contianing several bad sectors)intel graphicseverything works out of box (graphics, wireless, etc) on a live cdhowever after installation, upon boot, it displays "Error loading operating system" right after BIOS and before even goes into GRUB and is stuck there.Enter live cd, and choosing boot from harddrive does not solve the problem.Already did the CD check, which shows no problemdid a bit googlingturned out this could be an issue with a dying harddriveand sadly, it is the case, the harddrive on this 10 year old laptop is indeed dying D:However, installing windows xp posed no problem... (altho tons of driver issue, but anyways...)I have a few solutions in mind1). just use a usb stick as the replacement for harddrive2). get a new harddrive (not even sure what to get for this laptop D: )3). find a magical way to fix it :SWould definitely be glad to know a way to load this system on this existing harddrive for nowI was told earlier that there are ways to tell the system to avoid mapping the bad sectors.

OpenSUSE Install :: Error Loading Operating System?

Apr 24, 2010

I'm trying to install 11.2 Gnome from the live cd on an HP n410c laptop. The install seems to go smoothly until I'm told I must reboot without the cd. I've tried three or four variations of the process and each time I see, "Error Loading Operating System."I've reloaded the live cd and examined /boot/grub/menu.lst. It appears to be correct. It seems like the initial GRub loader isn't found in the MBR.If I run grub-install, the graphical interface comes up then complains, "Because of partitioning, the boot loader cannot be installed properly."

OpenSUSE Install :: Error Loading Operating System On First Reboot?

Jun 29, 2011

Installed 11.4 on a machine with two SATA drives which had previously been running Windows 2003. I deleted the Windows partitions and created a new partition scheme: Swap, root and one additional partition on the first disk, one large partition on the second disk. Install runs fine but upon reboot I get "Error loading operating system". Booting off a Windows floppy and running FDisk shows that the root partition is marked as active.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 Boot Fail After Install "Error Loading Operating System"?

Jul 13, 2011

I have installed openSuSE 11.4 32-bit on my PC. Installation went okay, but when I shut down the system and started later it does not load.

My computers have;
- Intel Pentium Dual Core processors
- Asus motherboards
- Onboard VGA, Sound, NW

What happens is, the first screen appear (where it instructs to press DEL to go to BIOS), then the system hangs us displaying "Error Loading Operating System". There nothing works, except the CTRL+ALT+DEL. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL, same cycle repeats.

Fedora Installation :: F10 + RAID 1 / Error Loading Operating System?

Jan 13, 2009

I have a fancy new Quad Core Xeon machine here that I'm trying to install F10 x64 on. The installation went fine. When it reboots the first time, though, I get the dreaded Error Loading OS.

So I dug up my bookmark of the awesome Grub HOWTO here and followed the steps to install Grub manually. Alas, I get the same result after installing it. Even tried doing a makeactive (hd0) just in case, but no luck.

I did more searching and searched for "raid install" but didn't find anything helpful. So here I am... hoping somebody has some insight.

OpenSUSE Install :: Error No Operating System?

Sep 8, 2010

Several months ago I installed Suse on my box...setup a dual boot with Windows XP. By default it booted into Suse. The problem is that the company I work for, not a science company, is VERY windows-centric, so nearly everything I do is in windows. The IT people here periodically reboot the computers which creates a problem for me since I often work remotely and this results in my computer booting into Linux.

So, to fix the problem I went into Suse, opened Yast, and changed the default boot to windows, and restarted.Now it won't boot into anything and not even the boot menu comes up.I get the following message:Error No operating systemIntel(R) Boot Agent GE v1.3.22Copyright (C) 1997-2008, Intel CorporationCLIENT MAC ADDR: 00 1C C0 E2 61 31 GUID: CAB279BC 5BF7 11DE 8A18 0007E9BECBF3PXE-E53: No boot filename receivedPXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.Boot FailurePress any key to continueIf I push any key, the same error repeats. Really, I truly couldn't care less about the stuff I have on the Linux partition; however, the Windows partition has TONS of data and programs I've written that would be an enormous loss.

Ubuntu Installation :: "Error Loading Operating System"?

Feb 3, 2010

I'm new to both Ubuntu and this forum, so please try to bear with me.I have a 500GB HDD with these partitions Screenshot.pngI'm currently using the live CD to boot because when I try to boot to this HDD it simply comes up with the error "Error loading operating system". It was working fine until I started reformatting a different drive with XP on it; since then it has had the error.As far as I know I need to reconfigure GRUB to boot to the correct partition, but I do not know how to do this.I know that there are already threads about booting/GRUB problems. I have looked at a lot of them but because no one has exactly the same problem as me I do not know what to do.

OpenSUSE Install :: System Crippled (no Input) Totally Dead

Mar 20, 2010

OpenSUSE 11.2 x86_64
Kernel 2.6.33-34.1(from Kernel:HEAD repo)
KDE 4.4.1

Did the daily set of updates today, which included the kernel, but that update only had to do with enabling IPV6 on all flavors of the kernel. The update also included updates to the xorg packages from the X11:XOrg repo. However I was prompted that a requirement couldn't be met and one of the options was to downgrade xorg-x11-driver-input to the previous revision (not previous version). I thought that wouldn't matter so I did it.

I reboot and I am able to choose the kernel I want in the grub boot screen, get to the KDM login screen, however, after that the input is totally dead! Mouse and keyboard don't work whatsoever. I have a Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave mouse (LX8) & keyboard so I tried it with a standard PS/2 wired mouse & keyboard but it produced the same exact problem.

Ubuntu :: GRUB2 Not Loading New Operating System (PClinuxOS)?

Aug 6, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu 9.10 for a while now, and i've started to look at other distros of linux. I found PClinuxOS which seemed decent and decided to install it alongside my Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows Vista. The bootloader that came with PClinuxOS recognised my Vista OS, but not my Ubuntu.long story short, i recovered Ubuntu's GRUB becasue i had already edited it to my liking. GRUB found the PClinuxOS partition and added it to the menu. Vista and Ubuntu start fine, but when i try to select the PClinuxOS option, i get this message-type-thing:

[linux-bzImage, setup=0x3a00, size=0x1f9110]vga=788 is deprecated. useset gfxpayload=800x600x16, 800x600 before linux command insteaderror: no such partitionI don't really know, but it almost sounds like GRUB is trying to find the linux kernel, but it cannot connect to the partition for some reason. I have been extremely pleased with Ubuntu, so I really don't need another distro, but I'd like to know how to fix this

Ubuntu :: Missing Operating System After Live Cd Use?

Jul 8, 2011

I was playing a bit with a 10.04 live cd and persistence on a small usb stick. I did that on a HP Probook 4510s with windows 7 installed. Testing the persistence, I changed the desktop background and tried to install a small package, about 14MB extra space was reported to be used. My usb stick is 512mb. Suddenly it says there's no more space. After that I rebooted with persistence and half way through loading it stopped saying there's no more space, again. I decided to call it quits and reboot it back to win 7, but doing that just left me with the message "missing operating system". I have no clue as to how it happened, since I did nothing with the hard drive.

Install :: Opensuse Not Letting Me Reistall Original Operating System On It / Fix It?

Aug 23, 2011

I recently installed opensuse on my computer due to it contracting a virus and not letting me reistall the original operating system on it. but i know nothing about this program. i have almost everything up to date and working on it. one thing i find strange is when i try to update the flash or java on it that i have to do all this extra stuff to get it to run. i do not know what programs to pull up to type the stuff down thats given in the java installation instructions. the movement of the webpages when scrolling is running slow and videos on ..... do not have as good of quality to it as it did on windows. so im assuming something is out of date or there are settings i need to adjust.

Ubuntu :: Operating System Lose Data During A Power Failure As Windows Operating System?

Will a Linux operating system lose data during a power failure as does a Windows operating system?

(If yes.) This has not come up before but I'm going to be doing some work I don't want to lose.

Could you either point me to a backup tutorial or give me the quick overview of preserving stuff with Ubuntu?

Ubuntu :: Computer Hangs At "Loading Operating System" / Solve This?

Aug 9, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu Lucid yesterday, and I'm dual-booting with Windows 7. (They're on separate physical drives if that's relevant.) I've discovered that whenever I restart the computer, it doesn't matter if it's from Windows or Ubuntu or just hitting the reset button, it hangs at "Loading Operating System." If I start it cold, though, it usually works fine. I tried Googling but I couldn't seem to find anybody else with this problem. I'm guessing it's a GRUB problem? Does anybody know how to fix it?

General :: GA-880GMA-UD2H Hangs On "Loading Operating System" After Removing LILO From MBR

Aug 2, 2010

I just joined the forum today. I'm not a linux beginner per se (about 4 years experience, now running Ubuntu Lucid on my laptop and windoze-free) and I built the desktop PC I'm typing this on six years ago. However, this is my first HTPC build and my first KnoppMyth install, and I've probably done something foolish.

This was an attempt at a fresh KnoppMyth 5.5 install on a virgin system. Hardware details:



Basically, I just wish I had never bothered with KM5.5 and I want a do-over to go back to the beginning and put the LinHES 6.03 CD in and just do the installation. Since I can't do this, I'd like to at least be able to wipe everything I did and start fresh. Recall that I couldn't boot from CDROM even before I made the daft remove of LILO. The only time I successfully booted from CD was the very first time I turned on the machine to install KM5.5

OpenSUSE Install :: Grub Loading Stage 1.5 Error 21

Jun 13, 2010

I installed opensuse 11.2 64bit on my external hard drive with the idea that this way the two OS would be completely seperate and I could just use suse when I felt like it. Everything boots fine for both OS when the hard driv is plugged in but when it is unplugged I can't get past a boot screen which says: Grub loading stage 1.5 Error 21 I have seen on another forum a fix using the windows install disk but I no longer have this. Is there some other fix I can use to make my laptop portable again.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Boot From USB Drive - "Missing Operating System"

Jun 7, 2011

I'm trying to install OpenSUSE on an external usb drive but when I boot from USB, all I get is a message saying "Missing Operating System". I've tried different ways of partitioning the drive either by letting OpenSUSE do it automatically or doing it myself. It's just a basic partitioning scheme, with swap on one partition sdb2 and the rest on root sdb1 .

I made sure to have GRUB be installed on the root partition of sdb (usb drive) instead of in the MBR (I've installed Fedora and Ubuntu on usb drives this way).

OpenSUSE Install :: Persistent 11.2 Live System On USB Not Booting

Dec 2, 2009

Yesterday I did follow exactly the description how to build a live system on a USB Stick with the additional second partition for the data of Live_USB_stick. So far I had success, as my Netbook did start booting and loaded the OpenSUSE 11.2. Then I rebooted the Netbook and it never again comes up with the 11.2. It looks as if it would stop somewhere at starting the graphical system, but I'm not sure.

Today, second try, I created the USB stick with the 11.2 Live System only (no second partition). My Netbook starts booting and shows the 11.2 system successfully, also further boots are the same successful. Then having created the Live system with the second partition again, results in a un-bootable Netbook again (not even the first time it comes up).

What I wonder when I did check the USB partitions: the one (sdg1) with the Live-CD can be mounted and the content is readable. The second one (sdg2) cannot be mounted; shouldn't it be mountable and shouldn't it be formated with a file system? Did anyone have some experience on this? Or, at least, the people having a running persistent live system, what does the partition them show up?
